There's also a shade of the Oasis in here from Ready Player One, a rather well thought out dip into virtual reality that I wish we'd gotten to see more of. Jacob plays a VR game where he's a dragonslayer, but we really don't get to experience that part - its not really integral to the story, but I wanted to experience it with him.
So to recap, Shelf Life stands very well on its own. It's a well written story about brutality and oppression that doesn't pull any punches. You will experience every hardship that Jacob endures. I enjoyed it, but I can't say that I am up for this sort of story often.
Written in a simple and powerful way, the story pulls you into a world not so far removed from ours, with characters and motivations so believable, it seems real. It is a shock when the novel ends! I only wish I could read more.
I knew nothing about the world it was set in, yet from the first sentences, I was drawn in and captivated. I couldn't put it down! Highly recommended!
